Should You Fix Your Old HVAC Unit?

No one wants to admit that their HVAC unit is shot. It signals a major headache and investing in a brand new system isn’t exactly “cheap.” Yet, in some cases, the cost of repairs could be just as taxing — if not more. In this blog, we’ll help you decide whether it’s worth repairing or whether it’s more cost-efficient to buy new.

Factors To Consider:

  • How old is your system? If it’s more than 10 years old, the mechanisms and individual parts will begin breaking down more often. Why pay high repair bills when you can have a maintenance-free summer with new HVAC?
  • Are you paying a lot to cool your home in the summer? You can expect to save $10 per improved SEER unit in energy efficiency. So, if you move from a 10 SEER unit to a 16 SEER, you will save approximately $60/month!
  • Is the refrigerant leaking? When there is a refrigerant leak, you’ll not only need to pay for a replacement evaporator coil, but also R22 freon — which can be very costly!
  • Did a major component blow? If your central ac compressor is blown, then you could end up with a bill that is $750 or higher. That’s 1/4 of the way to a brand new system!
  • Has your equipment been serviced already this year? The lowest repair charge you can expect to pay is $150, but if you need to have the unit serviced several times a year, even that petty fee will be monumental!
